First of all the hostess completely ignored my request to please be seated in the nicest area in the restaurant, which was basically EMPTY. She sent me and my parents to a hidden corner next to some walls. The waitress (SHAI)-I believe this is how it’s spelled, was very kind, attentive, and professional, she was one of the nicest waitresses I’ve ever met and made our experience delightful. The food wasn’t worth it, I ordered some meat and it came BURNT, I could literally break off chunks of black pieces. The mac and cheese was admirable but if you’re looking to get a good steak, please revise the cooking level you want. Overall I’d have to give this experience a 3.5/5 due to the food, the overcooked meat threw me off.

Overall was Good! The food and table service was excellent!!! We had a bad experience at first bc we were a party of 16 and the gentleman at the front desk was very intransigent and rude. We had reservation for Mother’s Day and he was very clear telling us that he could only sit 6 people for table bc of the CDC restrictions and we perfectly understood. But we ask him if he could sit us at least next to each others bc we had 7 kids with us and very rudely said “NO I CAN’T!” He didn’t even tried to help, So We had to call the manager and she kindly found a way to help us. Other than that was very good!!! I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Weeks ago I made reservations for JWB Steakhouse on May 8 at 7:30pm. I received many confirmations that my reservation was set. However, on May 8th at 5:17 I received an email from OpenTable stating my “reservation changes.” They told me that my reservation was switched to 5:30pm. IN 13 MINUTES. During that time I was driving and 1 hour away from the restaurant. I had to pull off the road and I immediately called the restaurant. The host put me on hold and then transferred me to this woman. I told her that I randomly received a notification that my reservation wrongly changed and she put me on hold several times. She looked up my name and told me I was wrong. She said they I only had a reservation at 5:30 and I had just made it at 5:17. I had printed out my 7:30 confirmation and had the confirmation number, but she would not even listen to me or let me talk. She said she could not even search my confirmation number. She claimed the only reservation under my name was 5:30 and it had not been changed at all. She did not care that I had the confirmation literally in my hands. I was so completely frustrated for being treated like an idiot and liar. The way she handled me was incredibly rude and aggressive.

She corrected me one last time to tell me that my only reservation was at 5:30pm, but she would see what she could do. She ended up telling me that I could come in at 7:30pm but I would probably need to wait to be seated.

She made it seem like a favor. So annoying!

The dinner was great and the waiter was amazing. But this really effected the time I had at Margaritaville. I’m not sure if someone at the restaurant accidentally made a mistake on my reservation, or if it was an OpenTable error. However, the way she handled it was terrible. Some of the worst customer service I have experienced.

I had every intention to speak with the manager when I got there, but unfortunately I believe the person I spoke to on the phone was the manager... disappointing.

It was an ok meal, service was better than the food
Don’t get the crab cakes, pure breading barely any crab meat
Caesar salad was bland needed seasoning, the twin lobster tails and the wine saved the meal from being a total bust

The food was some of the best I’ve ever had. A little more on the expensive side but completely worth it! Surf and turf was delicious. Also the mac and cheese and mashed potatoes for sides are must haves!

The food was OK. Bread crust was overdone (burnt tasting). The steak was under seasoned.

The big concern is that everyone is wearing black gloves - touching dirty dishes, food and drinks to everyone's tables WITHOUT changing gloves and obviously not washing their hands. When asked, our server stated that he changes gloves at break!!!

How healthy is that?

I don’t see how all the 5 star reviews where obtained without a free meal. When a restaurant prides itself that they choose to serve prime steak that doesn’t mean that the sides have to suffer. Appetizers where frozen calamari then refried, the chef did not educate the staff or make sure that every dish going out needs to be presentable and made fresh. Besides the grilled asparagus and our steaks, nothing was worth considered fresh. Also a big note - when ordering a nice meal and the waiter repeats what you ordered - it doesn’t mean that you will be served what you ordered. Even on a night that was Moderately busy our order was incomplete and lacking. A 3.5 is a max! No more.

Find a Ruth Chris and go home happy!

I would recommend JWB steak and seafood to anyone looking for a lovely date night, also if your family is celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, etc the family style side portions makes the ambience of the restaurant top tier.

We where staying on property at Margaritaville 4/20-4/25 and took advantage of dining at JWD Prime Steak & Seafood and we are so glad we did! We went a little early to have a drink in the lounge and our cocktail waitress (Palamo) was so sweet and personable! Drinks where on point! They seated us when we where ready. Manny was hands down best waiter we ever had at any fine restaurant!! He ordered our entire meal from appetizers/bottle wine to dessert!! Everything was impeccable! It was so, that we went twice that week and Manny ordered again and again it did not disappoint!! Our meals consisted of sushi for appetizer &deviled eggs, surf & turf, Prime bone in rib-eye, side of macaroni & cheese, Brussels sprouts & key lime pie for dessert!the second night sushi (btw the sushi is amazing), shrimp cocktail, boneless filet, bone in filet, side of gratin potatoes, bottle wine..banana cream pie..do not overlook this restaurant when in the area!! We will definitely be back!!

Amazing service. Top of the line service. Couldn't be better. Very good food. Ridiculous prices for what getting. Ceasar salad needs to be reworked. No real Parmesan cheese or Pecerino. No anchovy flavoring for true Ceasar salad. Chicken Au jus was wonderful. Salmon was very good. Succatash bed it lied on was amazing. RI Calamri was good and plentiful!

Our server was amazing! She recommended the perfect bottle of wine. Had the best sushi I’ve had only down side was i got the bone in filet and it was super tender but seemed like they forgot to sear the outside after roasting it so lacked the crust and flavor I’d look for but overall an amazing place for dinner
